Sweet nothings...

"Mommy, will you cuddle wif me?" I heard last night, as I was settling on my bed with a glass of wine and "Men in Trees" on the dvr.

I held in my sigh and internally repeated my silent mantra "He'll only be 5 once..." and went to cuddle with Evan.

We were all curled up and I could hear his breathing slowing and feel his body relaxing as I noticed him sighing sadly.

"What's wrong, baby boy?"

"Oh, I was just thinking of the old days." he said, wistfully.

Choking back my burst of laughter with a cough, I asked what he was thinking of...

"Oh, I was just remembering pre-school. I had show and tell every Monday (no show and tell in kindergarten), we had those cool car tracks and I got to play more."

Apparently, kindergarten is more work and less play. Poor guy.

I rubbed his arm and agreed that preschool sure was fun, and it was ok to miss it. We then snuggled until he passed out, his little hand in mine...

That is sweet but I know what you mean about keeping in the sigh :-)

Jack was just commenting today that he got to play so much more in Kindergarten that he does in grade 1. I wouldn't tell that to Evan though ;-)

That is so sweet! My 4 year old was talking this morning about when he was a baby. I had to bit my lip from pointing out that he's still my baby.
